Abstract: Browsers are applications that allow Internet access. A defining characteristic is their
unidirectionality: Navigator-> Internet. The purpose of this article is to support the idea of Intelligent
Browsers th at is defined by bidirectional: Navigator-> Internet and Internet-> Navigator. The fundamental
idea is that the Internet contains huge resources of knowledge, but they are passive. The purpose of this
article is to propose the activation of this knowledge so that they, through Intelligent Browsers”, to become
from Sitting Ducks to Active Mentors. Following this idea, th e present article proposes changes to Bookmarks
function, from the current status of Favorites to Recommendations. The article presents an analysis of the
utility of this function (by presenting a research of web browsing behaviors) and in particular finds that the
significance of this utility has decreased lately (to the point of becoming almost useless, as will be shown), in
terms data-information-knowledge. Finally, it presents the idea of a project which aims to be an applied
approach that anticipates the findings of this study and the concept of Intelligent Browsers (or Active
Browsers) required in the context of the Big Data concept.

1 Introduction
Web 2.0 revolution and the explosion of mobile communications have changed the way we relate to
internet and how we access it. On one hand the concept of user-content, on the other hand small size
display required by mobile technologies requested more intuitive, more convenient and faster
interfaces.
Automation process for certain actions based on reasons to reduce redundant movements included a
tendency to anticipate users' intentions, an application of behavioural insights gained by graphical
user interface architects.
